It Just happened…

It just happened…honest!

I have a small confession for which I hold my temporary insomnia completely responsible.  I have started  yet another crochet blanket.  But, in my defence it is a gorgeous broomstick crochet, and in a beautiful wild rose blush and it’s for my new bedroom. 

So, that’s ok. 

It is!…just look at it on a chunky size 22 needle.

This blanket is so pretty and feminine and uses a very old stitch.  Traditionally, hooked over a broomstick handle, hence the name.  It is a little undignified, sat with a huge needle between your legs whilst you anchor the stitches over that size 22!! 

Not really one to take to the coffee shop if you catch my drift!

  I have also been really enjoying the ‘yarn – a – long’ series which has been running each Sunday through March.  There is still time to join in with the chatter, last Sundays is just here.

Enjoy the rest of your week whatever you have planned.

  1. Love the look of your new blanket! I have heard of broomstick lace, but have never done it. I can see this one will not be one to take to the coffee shop or the car dealership while waiting on an oil change, LOL The color is really beautiful, too and I can’t wait to see more. I think it is the perfect way to spend the weekend inside, away from the snow 😉
